I am someone prone to escapism (hello I dress up in weird clothes to play with my friends).  And I have a bad habit of binging on time I spent a whole day watching versions of Jane Eyre and reading the book, one time it was Emma...last night I found a copy online of a book series I ADORED when I was in Middle School and High School. I started re-reading it...oops. I realized when I came up for air at 7pm tonight that I had wasted an entire day and I am always left with a weird hangover feeling. Like coming out of an imaginary world and back into my own. I'm SUCH an empath that I get very into whatever I'm watching or reading and walk away with a headache and odd fuzzy after feeling like a horrible person for wasting an entire day when I have a huge to do list and a dress to finish I tried to figure out why do I do this to myself?

I think the times I've done this all line up with periods where I'm feeing huge uncertainty and anxiety. Today specifically I was hiding from the healthcare ruling. Do I have a huge pre-existing condition? not yet? well other than a uterus. But Rob has depression, and it IS a hugely big problem in our life If he lost coverage because if it I'm not sure how he would function. 

But I'm also a 33 year old woman who wanted to be a parent, have financial stability and feel like I was contributing to the I'm struggling to find my place. What will not being a mother be like for me? Do I want to move to MA to be with my nieces? Do I want to tell Rob to move to LA in the hopes of him succeeding in an impossible career and him being happy?...yeah I guess no wonder I like to pretend I don't exist in another world sometimes....although that doesn't help this dress get finished. I guess it's 8pm now and I should eat something and try to sew a little.

I try to think of those kinds of days as mental health days, but its still hard to be forgiving of myself when it happens. Hugs from canada. I wish i could take you all in :(

Well, now I need to know what the book series is!

I know what you mean - some days are very hard to get through. Hang in there.

Sometimes you gotta do that you gotta do. A little escapism every now and then is a good thing. All things in moderation, yanno. It's only a problem if you never come back to the real world. Or it starts interfering in work or your marriage or that sort of thing.
